From looking like ham to lovely soap

So I've been making soap again. This time playing around with the swirling technique.
I attempted to make a soap loaf consisting of chocolate brown translucent swirls with mica, and pale pink opaque swirls, scented with Cocoa marshmallow FO.

I poured the soap too soon as it all splurged together creating a loaf of one colour - pinky with streaks of White and brown. It looked like processed ham! Not a good look at all.

So I melted it back down again and had another go at swirling, but tried it in a silicon cake tin, making a slab rather than a loaf. I'm rather pleased with the outcome!

Much better looking than ham soap anyway. ;)
